What's meant by sustainable development? This film offers a stark account of the dangers threatening the planet and explores what we can do to avoid disaster.
The problems started about 250 years ago with the industrial revolution. First coal, then oil, fuelled a world of mass production, mass consumption - and cars. Burning oil and carbon has been a disaster for the planet - most scientists blame it for global warming. New deserts will form, the polar ice cap will melt and sea levels will rise bringing floods and disaster.
Rainforests are called the "lungs of the earth" - but they're disappearing, and the industrialisation of farming and fishing is depleting natural resources and destroying biodiversity. Population and life-style are major factors, too, creating rubbish and pollution. Tourism has been become a huge global industry - but local cultures and the environment have suffered.
Some people are taking action to make life sustainable - planting trees, controlling traffic and promoting renewable forms of energy. But is this enough? Is it too late?
